    Smile Duty Free At Airport

    Bon Dia, Dushis: Have they opened any duty free shop with liquor on the way into Aruba. We used to be able to buy from the little kiosks but have not seen that in the last couple of years? I am heading down on Friday and was curious if I should just buy at Duty Free in Boston.

    Thanks - G

    Buy in Boston. Kiosks not there anymore. AA has shop right after you pass thru the metal detectors on your right hand side. They open early. DOn't know if that is what you are flying....

    Up until last year we were offered duty free stuff on USAir. They still had it in November, but no booze....bummer...I was so cheap we bought enough for the entire trip and we able to keep the tab way down at the hotel.
    Not sure what flight you're on, I assume AA, but I would just get it at the airport and save the trouble of looking...BTW, have fun....we're not going till November....

    I wish they still have the duty free upon exiting the planes.... I just buy my liquor before hand at Sam's and pack it. I make sure that I wrap it very good and never have any problems.
